I write to you as Chair of the Judging Panel of South Africa's inaugural Rosé Wine Competition, and to invite you to enter your wines in this exciting new wine event.
Called 'Rosé Rocks!', this competition will reflect the fact that rosé is one of the fastest growing categories of wine in South Africa, and internationally.
In South Africa alone, sales have trebled between 2007 and 2014. This is exciting for consumers and winemakers alike, and there's no doubt about it, rosé wines have a certain sex appeal!
Winemakers are now producing beguiling examples of this wine, and consumers are increasingly appreciating its qualities as a wonderfully versatile wine to accompany food or to sip with friends.
Below you will find an entry form for your attention. All the relevant details are contained on it.
I look forward with anticipation to your involvement, and I am sure you will agree with me that this initiative will help promote the SA Rosé category.
